Hi XXXXXXX,
Thanks for posting your query.
I am Dr.Ratnakar Kini and I am pleased to answer your your query.
The high SGPT and SGOT could be possibly due to fatty liver disease. An ultrasound scan of the abdomen may be done for confirmation.
For treatment, you need to reduce your weight as your obese which can cause fatty liver disease. You have stop drinking alcohol( if you have the habit of drinking).
Triglyceride levels also be reduced. Avoid fatty food, increase your physical activity and take medications to decrease its level. Consult your physician for prescription.

I hope that answers your question.

Hi,
The most likely cause is fatty liver. But other causes like HBV and HCV infection also should be ruled out.

I hope that answers your question.
